Does anyone know why this is?? Has anyone ever taken optical drives apart and replaced any peices to get it to work again??
The reason I ask, is because I have a Toshiba SD-R5002 DVD-R/-RW drive that no longer reads ANY CD/DVD disks. I have tried updating the firmware and it has not helped. The drive was manufactured in April 2003 and is already dead.
It ejects fine and the LED lights up like it is TRYING to read the disks, but never reads them. Sounds like it never fully spins up. Anyone have any ideas??
